Esther (25) is one of our agents of change. “I used to be a sex worker, but got out of that life via sports. ISA partner A-STEP persuaded me to play a football match. I enjoyed the game and was amazed about the talks with the sports leaders about life skills, HIV/AIDS and safe sex. It made me want to become a sports leader myself; to teach sports, empower girls and help other sex workers. A few years later, this dream has become a reality.”
ISA supports its local partners to set up and continuously improve up-to-date, well-designed Sport for Development programmes and activities. By using and stimulating sports as a non-formal learning tool, we create an impact on the lives of young people in three areas:
Equality between men and women is a human right and a precondition for sustainable development.
We mainstream gender equality into the planning, implementation and monitoring of all our programmes and projects.
